They were later dated between 3500 and 3200 BC. Spherical and hollow, they were used to convey financial tokens utilized in private transactions between members of the ruling class and members of the wealthy elite.

The New Sunday Paper: Will the future of streaming arrive in an envelope
Article in Medium When I was a small child my entire family lived in the remote Southern Californian desert. Our only access to electronic media was a gargantuan satellite dish that delivered no less than five hundred channels of scrambled, hissing static. And for reasons I will never understand, it also delivered one unending crystal clear image of Country Music Television (which was of very little use to me, personally).

Be Careful What You Wish For
Euro Article Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it. I wrote an article in February this year titled ‘where have all the heroes gone’ hoping for Britain to be brave and believe in itself. I was as surprised as everyone when last week we did exactly that.
Where have all the heroes gone? UK referendum on Europe, will tech opportunities be in or out?
Euro Article In light of the upcoming referendum, I recently briefed my US colleagues on the situation as I see it and, amid the coming noise, were there tech opportunities?I have always believed that Europe’s strength lay in its diversity, its competitiveness, its friendly rivalry, its cooperation, copying the best practices of neighbours, its independent pride and patriotism. It’s not news that, generally, most Brit’s have a sweeping disregard for politicians. None more so than the power hungry expense cheating Mandarins of Brussels. How can it be just, that such ‘suits’ fairly control the affairs of a variety of sovereign states from afar. History shows us that they clearly can’t. Just look at Greece, the founders of democracy, the home of heroes like Hercules and Achilles, currently being bullied by bureaucrats from Brussels.

Sounds Like IBS?
Healthcare Article So there I was, the proud father of a perfectly healthy, if not sometimes grumpy, rebellious, thirteen year old boy. He was doing well at school, playing football and rugby, studying hard, going out with his friends, just awarded his karate black belt, feeling fine, enjoying life, active, could eat any food, handle pretty much any drink, having a cool time – perfectly fine.
Watch the Watchers
Security Article Imagine that someone was watching you, eavesdropping on your entire family, all of their emails, texts, thoughts, ideas, photographs and listening into every phone call. Imagine how you’d feel.
